Frequently asked questions

What is a commercial contract?

A commercial contract is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties relating to a commercial transaction. It outlines the terms and conditions that govern the relationship between the parties, such as payment terms, delivery dates, and warranties.

Can a commercial contract be verbal?

While some contracts can be verbal, it is strongly recommended to have a written contract to ensure that all parties understand the terms and conditions of the agreement. A written contract will also minimise the risk of disputes and misunderstandings.

What should be included in a commercial contract?

A commercial contract should include the names and addresses of the parties involved, a description of the goods or services being provided, payment terms, delivery dates, warranties, limitation of liability provisions and any other relevant terms and conditions.

What happens if one party breaches a commercial contract?

If one party breaches a commercial contract, the other party may be entitled to damages or other remedies, such as specific performance or termination of the contract. The specific remedies available will depend on the terms of the contract and the applicable law.
